Out This Week: Turn A Gundam, Knights Of Sidonia, Full Dive and More


It's another week so it's another new release round-up, and things are looking pretty quiet this second week of May. In fact, the UK only has one solitary release in the form of the theatrical follow-up to Knights Of Sidonia, subtitled Love Woven In The Stars. It's only marginally busier on the other side of the pond, with a handful of new anime titles held up by the marvelously titled Full Dive :This Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Sh*ittier than Real Life!

After spending a year on Earth, Loran has become good friends with Sochie and Kihel, daughters of the prestigious Heim family, and he looks forward to fully integrating into Earth society. But before Loran gets the chance to make his report, the Moonrace launch a surprise attack. Earth's primitive airplanes are no match for the superior power of the Moonrace's mobile suits. However, in the midst of the initial attack, Loran and Sochie uncover a long-forgotten relic: a white mobile suit. As a Moonrace, Loran is quickly able to grasp the basics of piloting it, but by doing so, he inadvertently places himself in the middle of a war."
